Last Update:



Tracks runner's in/out time at each aid station. Saves data in CSV file. Can be configured for other races. AidStations.txt in repository contains the 15 or so Aid Stations used for the Bear100. The Bear100 is an annual 100 mile, 2 day race on foot through the Rocky Mountains in North America.

Will communicate via serial over a 1200 baud AX.25 link to a ARES/Data backend (which we call NetControl). Can initialize some hardware TNCs with parameters optimal for ARES/Data topology. See ARES paper for topology/backend:

All Aid Stations are expected to use same frequency concurrently, and optionally send queries to Net Control. Note backend will support more frequencies if more radios were hooked up.

Expected that subset of stations will use software. Remainder will communicate runner data via voice to NetControl.
